Ryan B. Jones
B.S. in Information Technology
Concentration in Finance

Ryan B. Jones *
“As a whole, the IT program prepared me well for the job market. I have more technical skills than someone with a strictly financial background. I worked with an Ivy League school graduate who had a great financial background and no technical skills and they were at a great disadvantage.”

Ryan is from Berkeley, CA. He came to Rensselaer because of the IT major. Ryan is a pilot and was a member of the flying club while at Rensselaer. He was also on the swim team and was very active in the class council while a student.

Current Position: Consultant, IBM Business Consulting Services, Financial Markets: Risk and Compliance Practice

Description: Ryan’s group works with Wall Street firms to analyze their business practices to ensure they are in full compliance with all legal and regulatory obligations. His group provides both proactive services to help firms prevent future problems and reactive services to help firms fix practices after regulatory actions have occurred. His work often involves interacting with people from many facets of a client firm, including people from business, technology and legal departments within the firm.
